Welcome to the Division of Hematology & Oncology at the University of Florida. The Division is made up of 40 talented faculty members with diverse backgrounds and experience, all of whom share a common goal of providing excellence in patient care, medical education, and research. The Division is also home to 15 hematology and oncology fellows. Faculty within the Division of Hematology & Oncology specialize in the treatment of all types of cancers and hematologic (blood) disorders including solid tumor cancers, hematologic cancers, and non-cancerous hematologic disorders. Our faculty have expertise in all aspects of cancer care, including chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy, and bone marrow transplantation. We are an important part of the UF Health Cancer Center, and our faculty work closely with clinical, laboratory, population science, and other research colleagues. In addition to working to prevent, detect, and treat cancer and blood disorders, the Division of Hematology & Oncology is dedicated to the education and training of the next generation of physician leaders in the field of hematology/oncology.
